Two year olds and mushrooms


I was able to go to a lady's Bible Study today while my husband was home with my 10 year old and 2 year old sons.

Apparently we have mushrooms growing under a bush in our backyard. Our two year old picked one, tore off a piece and brought it to my husband and said "CHEESE." He also put his fingers in his mouth.

They are at the ER now. We did call poison control who described the poisonous mushrooms of our area and it DID sound like it. When figuring out who should take Luke, my husband said he would because he would be wondering. I complied and am now the one here wondering:) I'm thinking they will force him to vomit and then wait...right?

We went to a funeral yesterday. Our dear friend Mark Riddering went to be with the Lord surrounded by his family on Thanksgiving day. I don't say that lightly. There are very few times when you REALLY know if someone knows Christ or not. He did. No question. I cried because he was such an amazing testimony to God. I cried because his family is so amazing. I cried because this amazing family comforted us and thanked us for being there. I cried because they are so amazing and i feel so lacking. I cried because I feel so blessed to be able to know them. I cried because he was in pain for so long. I cried because of the amazing way that he used his pain for His glory. I cried because I do not. I cried because where Mark is there is no more pain. No more tears. Today...I feel congested and hung over...a lot like I cried for five hours :)

Now I wait for news on Luke. Would you come before God with some requests for me? would you ask that we know quickly, that Luke recover well, that there not be any snags with insurance or anyone questioning how our child got a hold of poison....for my peace too....


My husband just called. They waited almost an hour and a half to be seen. Luke was given activated charcoal mixed with chocolate milk. He drank it quickly and asked for more. They want to keep him for another hour and possibly draw blood.

Very scary! I hope everything is okay! And, very sorry for the loss of your friend.. there's never really any right thing to say, but I am sorry :(

I'm assuming everything's okay at this point. That's so scary. Ben bit off the end of a glass dropper one time and was just fine, but I was a basket case.
